Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-7906) Spatial relationship between Geoshapes
Date Mon, 17 Jul 2017 08:06:00 GMT
Ignacio Vera created LUCENE-7906:

             Summary: Spatial relationship between Geoshapes
                 Key: LUCENE-7906
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: modules/spatial3d
            Reporter: Ignacio Vera


Working with geosahpes and trying to resolve spatial relationships between them I came accross
a big limitation when trying to solve the relationship between two geopolygons. This object
does not expose the internal structure. In particular at some point, it is necessary to check
if one polygon intersects the edges of the other polygon which currently is not possible as
edges are not exposed.

To be able to perform such operation it can be several options. The ones I can think of are:

1) Expose the edges of the polygon ( and probably the notable points for the edges) adding
getters in the GeoPolygon interface. Easy to implement and leave users the responsability
of coding the spatial relationship.

2) Extends GeoPolygon interface to extends geoarea and leave the object make the spatial relationship.

3) Extends GeoShape  interface so all shapes can infer the spatial relationship with other

I might be bias as my interest is in 2d Shapes in the unit sphere and there might be some
cases which what I propose cannot be implemented or are againts the aim of the library.

What do you think?
